The new lift unit delivered by partner Santis now has been integrated in the test installation of the T4ME2 prototype located in the Living Lab of TUW.
The new lift unit is much more robust and therefore enables semi-public use. Equipped with 2 motors, it is able to change height and tilt independently of each other.
A basic version (Prototype 1) with the focus on the provision of physical support will be user tested in fall 2021. Later, for the final prototype 2, which is scheduled for 2022, integration of components for increased safety (AI based depth sensor), support for cleaning, voice control and user preference recognition are foreseen. All components are coupled via ICT to a modular and flexible system with an intuitive user interface allowing easy control.
